Gentoo Category Select is a graphical tool for selecting Gentoo Package Categories to exclude from your local package repository. It does so by weaning information from multiple directories and files for convenience, as well as providing warning about categories that should not be excluded due to currently installed packages. This is achieved without the addition of a configuration file. Currently only the Qt front-end is finished. It is modularly designed for ease in creating front-ends based on other toolkits. The advantages are saved disk space (small/MMV), quicker rsync time (small/MMV), and a lessening of bandwidth requirements by gentoo.org and its mirrors.
HAL/C++ is a library using dbusmm to access the HAL daemon. The library is not a wrapper around libhal and libhal-storage, but rather a reimplementation using dbusmm to communicate with the HAL daemon. Even though it is modeled after the official libhal and libhal-storage, it does not aim at complete adherance to the original API. The library is application-oriented, so for now, features that would only be useful to system-level applications or daemons, or HAL addons, are not being implemented. However, some of these features are mostly conveniences in the original libhal, and can be emulated even with the existing API.
Hamster Font Manager (HFM) helps you control the avaliability of fonts in all of the supported applications from a central place. It includes modules to support X11, Ghostscript, and TeX. A PostScript module handles PS Fonts while other fonts remain untouched by this program. It features a nice Tcl/TK GUI. For X11 configuration to work, this software has to run on the machine's own X Server.
